Paul Jenkins was born in the West Midlands, England in 1949. Paul first started his career in art the early 70's sculpting in wood and then found himself drawn to sculpting in clay and wax. He then went on to study ceramics at Dudley College of Art. Within five years Paul had a growing customer base that included galleries, private collectors as well as the general public. Paul then sold the business to concentrate on more exclusive art work rather than the mass market pieces he had successfully produced in the past.
He then went on to work as a commercial designer for various companies around the world including the Metropolitan Museum in New York. There he was commissioned to reproduce the exact size, shape and colour of a rare l850's tea pot which was exhibited at the museum. Further copies were sold onto galleries and private collectors. Paul has also created more outlandish pieces such as 6 Ten-foot Art Deco Figures for the interior of a night club.
Paul has also sculpted several pieces for the National Trust which were then presented to people for their outstanding contributions within the trust. Paul's Inspirations come from his love of nature especially animals. Many of his pieces are inspired from direct observations of wild animals in their natural habitat.
